It was National Smores Day! We had to celebrate. What self-respecting-blogging-mom wouldn't celebrate? Most especially when that particular mom LOVES s'mores and that certain mom had allowed the girls to invite their friends over. This is the ever-so-lovely C.S. She is a keeper. I love it when little Miss C.S. is in the house. She is the child of the man-who-shall-remain-nameless. I can't even put his initials up.......This is a Family Blog. Secretly, we do like the guy. We just can't let him know this. He doesn't need any more power or self-esteem.
We made marshmallows. We toasted them over the gas cooktop and made a really BIG mess!!!!!
We mixed them up with vanilla ice-cream and made the best-est ever S'Mores Ice cream Shakes.
(Just add a toasted marshmallow or 2, some mini chocolate chips with some vanilla ice-cream and a splash of milk. Blend it all together. Add some whipped topping on top and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs!!) You will thank me later for this ....
This is the recipe I use for the marshmallows. Don't be intimidated here...it is really easy!
You pretty much know the drill on the rest....I like to think of my blog reading friends as intelligent...So I won't bore you with details on how to properly burn marshmallow's and how to properly sandwich a s'more. I will beg you to not purchase inferior chocolate. Run get some Hershey's, Ghirardelli or Godiva bars........... something that is good......not generic or low-grade.
These marshmallows deserve better!
